Seven Pasquotank County Sheriff's deputies have been placed on administrative leave and three more have resigned since Andrew Brown Jr. was shot and killed by deputies on Wednesday, according to local WAVY reporter Jason Marks.

The shooting happened in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Brown was fleeing sheriff's deputies when he was shot multiple times. Brown's family said he was unarmed at the time and has demanded body camera footage of the incident.

Sheriff Tommy Wooten said that the video could be released in the next few days, and the Elizabeth City Council voted unanimously to petition the Pasquotank County Sheriff to release body camera video.
